Yankees rumors: NY among nine teams interested in Nate Schierholtz

Jed Jacobsohn

Schierholtz has drawn a lot of interest since being non-tendered last week.

The New York Yankees are one of nine teams showing interest in free-agent outfielder Nate Schierholtz, reports Buster Olney of ESPN:

Acquired by Philadelphia as part of the Hunter Pence trade, the 28-year-old Schierholtz was non-tendered by the Phillies last week, putting yet another left-handed-hitting outfielder on the free agent market. The right fielder appeared in just 37 games for the Phillies, hitting .273/.319/.379 with a lone home run in 73 plate appearances.

New York is looking for a replacement for long-time right fielder Nick Swisher. A career .270/.319/.409 hitter in parts of six big-league seasons, Schierholtz could end up being a nice, cheap alternative in right field for the Yankees and several other clubs. The Yankees have also been linked to other free-agent outfielders like Cody Ross, Scott Hairston and Shane Victorino.
